Teaching with Technology Video Library

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The NETS video library is a collection of video of actual classrooms, enriched by additional material such as lesson context, teacher handouts and even student work, accessible alongside the video.
Each lesson has a pre-lesson interview, the lesson video itself (most an hour long), and then a post-lesson interview with the teacher. In addition, most lessons also include guiding questions, context, the teacher lesson plan, identified standards, commentary, and student handouts & work.
The application includes twenty-two lessons currently, and will have more added as we are able to get them online.
This product is created with the support of Arizona State University's Technology Based Learning & Research department at Skysong in Scottsdale, AZ.

This is a great app, which has the potential to be utilized in many ways. This app features a video recording of the lesson and then it allows for one to view handouts, sample student work, teacher-created material and the general lesson plan. There are many more features, but the main feature for me is that an entire curriculum could feasibly be housed here. Where I work, we teach a 6-level English curriculum that focuses on developing listening, speaking, reading and writing skills at university level for English as a Second Language (ESL) students. If we were to film sample lessons at each level and provide sample student work with teacher-generated rubrics, we could create a more coherent view of what we teach across the levels. That would be a massive undertaking, and my question is whether or not anyone could upload to this app or if it is a stand-alone app. It would serve best in my opinion as a curriculum platform.
I like this app its very useful. I wish they would make it available for mobile devices other than iPads. The layout is user friendly and it is as simple as finding what you want and clicking. I really like the additional information that is included with the app such as the handouts and student work.
